US Christians declare war

Not that they haven't been at war with us, but this certainly looks like a declaration of war to me. About 200 or so Christians from various organisations have come together to condemn marriage equality and draw a line in the sand. That the Supreme Court has no right to make any rulings of marriage and they don't recognise it's power to do so.

Some of it:
As Christian citizens united together, we will not stand by while the destruction of the institution of marriage unfolds in this nation we love. The Sacred Scriptures and unbroken teaching of the Church confirm that marriage is between one man and one woman. We stand together in solidarity to defend marriage and the family and society founded upon them. The effort to redefine marriage threatens the proper mediating role of the Church in society.

 ............................... 
As Christians united together in defense of marriage, we pray that this will not happen. But,make no mistake about our resolve. While there are many things we can endure, redefiningmarriage is so fundamental to the natural order and the true common good that this is the line wemust draw and one we cannot and will not cross. more
Not only is this hatred of the LGBT community rather unchristian, it goes right outside the fact that their religious freedom comes from the very secular society that they rail against.

Who the hell are these people anyway? They've not been elected to govern over the US population have they? They have no right what so ever in a democracy to demand the entire population adheres to their world view.

Well, as secular citizens, I trust LGBT Americans united together, will not stand by while the destruction of lives continues at the hands of the churches.
